          I saw them outdoors in upstate NY in 1987. It was in the 20s and it snowed and they were looking around like "the fuck is this?"

          Carly Barret was murdered by his wife about two weeks later.

            I'm not sure if it's the birth of ska, but it's at least adjacent.

              From the description ""Simmer Down" was the first single released by The Wailers, accompanied by the ska supergroup, The Skatalites, and produced by Clement "Coxsone" Dodd in 1963. It was the number one hit in Jamaica in February, 1964."

              from the comments
              "this is what happened when the primarily calypso musicians in Jamaica started listening to American doo wop which resulted in an upbeat called ska.

                Well, I just spent the last hour reading and listening.

                1. I had no fucking idea that doowop+calypso=>ska=>rocksteady=>reggae

                i had that almost entirely backwards. I thought ska was a form of reggae. Jeebus.

                2. Early bob marley is really, really good. I mean, later bob Marley is good too. But I just never really got into it. Not as much as I did with (apparently) the third wave of ska. So this early stuff is just mind blowing.

                3. It's incredible that Simmer Down is the same guy who did some of his more widely known songs.

                Anyways, I've got some listening to do this week.

                  So you were into 3rd wave ska?

                  I had a radio show in college called Skallege Radio that I inherited from a friend. When I took over we were playing mostly 3rd wave, with some 2nd wave stuff mixed in. Eventually I started playing more ska/punk bands and eventually straight up punk (even though that didn't fit the theme of the show) because that was more aligned with my interests at the time.

                  One time while I was on the air I got a phone call from a guy that was in town on a business trip. He was calling to request one of his songs. He was a former member of the band Spring Heeled Jack U.S.A. Unfortunately the studio's catalog didn't have their first album, and don't remember if either me or my cohost actually had it in our personal collections but I do know neither one of us had a copy that night so we blew our chance to play a song requested by one of the musicians on the album.

                            That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                              Sadly not a surprise in the least.

                              I suppose now they can see if CTE was the culprit for his increasingly erratic behavior.
